匈牙利是个内陆国家,没有海,但却流行“海滨度假”。

这是因为匈牙利拥有中欧最大的湖——巴拉顿湖?Lake Balaton

这个湖也被称为“匈牙利海”,全国各地的人和外国游客都喜欢来这里度假。

It's an unlikely place for a beach holiday. Yes, Hungary is landlocked. However, at almost 600 square kilometres, Lake Balaton is the largest lake in Central Europe – so big, in fact, that it's often referred to as the Hungarian Sea, and sunseekers have flocked to its shores for decades. The nearby sulphuric waters of Heviz, meanwhile, are said to have medicinal qualities, and are believed to cure rheumatic ailments, aches and pains.
这是一个适合进行海滨度假的地方,这听起来不可思议。没错,匈牙利是一个内陆国家。然而,占地近600平方公里的巴拉顿湖是中欧最大的湖泊。事实上,巴拉顿湖那么大以至于经常被称为“匈牙利海”,几十年里,慕名而来的游客络绎不绝。与此同时,附近的赫维兹硫磺水据说有药用价值,可以治疗风湿病和各种病痛。
